Javi Gracia got off to a good start as Leeds manager, winning his first game against fellow relegation battlers Southampton 1-0. It was a result that moved the Yorkshire club out of the relegation zone but they are still by no means clear, only above the bottom three on goal difference.

Everton moved level on points with Leeds by virtue of their draw with Nottingham Forest last weekend as Gracia’s men were beaten 1-0 by Chelsea, but the Whites do have a game in hand over the Toffees. Leeds also saw their gap to Southampton cut back to just a point after Saints beat Leicester, and there may be some worries of dropping back into the bottom three this weekend if results go against them.

Brighton, meanwhile, may still be harbouring hopes of qualifying for the Champions League. But even if they believe that to be too far, the Seagulls are still in a good position to secure European football of some kind. Roberto De Zerbi’s men are currently eighth, seven points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur but do have three games in hand over the London club. Their biggest rivals for European football are perhaps Newcastle, who they trail by two points, but while the Magpies also have games in hand on the teams around them, Brighton have also played one match fewer.

The Seagulls recently lost 1-0 to Fulham, ending a five-game unbeaten run which included a 3-0 win over Liverpool, which will have thrown a minor spanner into their European hopes. But Brighton bounced back in emphatic fashion last weekend, beating West Ham 4-0 at the Amex, the first of three games against teams in the bottom half of the table.

Leeds vs Brighton match stats

Brighton are one of the top scorers in the Premier League this season with only four teams having found the net more than the Seagulls. They have only failed to score in one of their 11 Premier League away games so far this season, the joint-fewest in the division, and across all matches have averaged 5.91 shots on target per game – only Liverpool (5.92) have a better average this season.

The main man for Brighton at the moment is Kaoru Mitoma, who has scored three goals in his past five matches and also provided an assist in the 4-0 win over West Ham last time out. Now on six goals for the season, Mitoma is looking to break the record for the most goals scored in a single Premier League season by a Japanese player, currently level with Shinji Kagawa (2012/13) and Shinji Okazaki (2017/18).

Brighton are unbeaten in their past five games against Leeds since the Yorkshire club were promoted back into the Premier League, last losing in the Championship in 2017. But that Leeds victory towards the end of a campaign was an anomaly of recent times with Brighton winning nine of the past 12 meetings.
